HARRELLSVILLE, NC – James Matthew Lacy, Jr., age 53, passed away on May 14, 2019 at one of his favorite places, by the water.

Mr. Lacy was born on June 8, 1965 to James and Ellen Lacy in Dallas, TX. Matt worked in landscaping and highway construction. Matt was a loving husband, son, father, Pop Pop, brother, and uncle. He was an avid outdoorsman that enjoyed nature. His true passion was plants and designing beautiful landscapes and watching them grow. Matt loved being by the water, which is only fitting that he met his wife and chose to raise his children on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. He cherished his fur babies, being the only man on the beach that had his precious Pomeranian as his front seat companion. Matt will be deeply missed by his beloved family and friends.

Matt was preceded in death by his mother, Ellen Egan Lacy and his faithful companion, his fur baby, Ginger Snap.

Left to cherish Matt’s memory is his wife of nearly 33 years, Lynne of the home, his son, Joshua Matthew Lacy and his fiancé, Caitlin Morgan Pyatt of Wilmington, NC; his daughter, Jessica Lacy Goodwin and husband Steven of Cedar Island, NC; two grandsons, Cole Goodwin and Maverick Glenn Lacy; granddaughter, Ariya Goodwin; sister, Patricia Lynette Lacy of Kill Devil Hills, NC; niece, Brittany Lacy of Kill Devil Hills, NC; and his precious fur babies; Tempie, Penelope, and Coda.

A celebration of life memorial service will be held on Monday, May 20, 2019, at 11:00 am at the Chapel of Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service, Ahoskie, NC, with Pastor Joe Lassiter officiating. The family will receive friends following the service.

Uncle Matt was always there when he was needed. His love and support for his family was a beautiful thing. God has called him home where Ginger has been waiting patiently and now they will watch over their loved ones together again. He will be dearly missed. Love and condolences from Charlotte.

Our sincere condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. The Bible helps us to deal with our grief (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). We can also find hope from Jesus words at John 5:28, 29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” I hope these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.
